Did Tom Brady and Antonio Brown just become best friends? Yes!
The mercurial wide receiver was released by the Raiders at request Saturday and was signed by the Patriots a few hours later, and Brady apparently couldn't be happier.
Prior to the Patriots' "Sunday Night Football" matchup with Brown's old team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, Al Michael revealed that Patriots owner Bob Kraft ran the idea of signing AB by Brady before pulling the trigger and the six-time Super Bowl champion said he was "100 percent" behind the move before correcting himself to say he was "1000 percent" behind the move.
Brady is so excited to have his first elite receiver since Randy Moss that Brown's agent Drew Rosenhaus told Michael that TB12 has told Brown he can stay with him and his wife Gisele Bundchen until he gets settled.

Brown had a rocky tenure with the Raiders -- from frostbitten feet to helmet grievances and fights with general manager Mike Mayock -- and many believed the Patriots wouldn't be the right fit for the four-time All-Pro. They were wrong. For now.
With Brown in the fold, Brady now will have him, Josh Gordon, Julian Edelman and Demaryius Thomas. If only they could talk Rob Gronkowski into donning the helmet again.
